Band Members Recognized at TMEA


On Wednesday, November 30th, students left from school to audition for the TMEA Region Band. Because it is the first year the band is competing, it is exciting to congratulate the 12 students who returned as District band members, 2 as Regional band members, and 3 as Area band members who also placed 1st overall.

Students across the state prepare months in advance for the prestigious competition and its intense process. It’s very impressive that our second year school has the opportunity to compete, and even more impressive that we had a high turn out. 

“I’m really happy I was able to experience it freshman year,” Jocelyn Heart said, “and I’m really happy to have made district!”

Those who placed in Region Band and Area Band will perform with members from 7 other schools in an “all-star style band.” Students selected for Area Band have the opportunity to audition for the All-State band, which is the “highest individual honor a student can receive in Texas music performance.”
